Time Out says

Enjoy a range of delicious pizzas that cost no more than $8

Fitzroy bar and pizzeria Bimbo is as well-known for its range of cheap and delicious pizzas as it is for the giant Kewpie baby doll on the building’s exterior. That’s why this Brunswick Street institution, which has been around for nearly two decades, has been rebranded as Kewpie. 

The name and owners may be new, but the pizza menu remains faithful to the original with a range of vegetarian, meat and seafood pizzas that cost no more than $8. Could you ask for a more budget-friendly way to line your stomach before a big night out? 

On top of slinging pizza, Kewpie will also be hosting weekly events. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays there will be rotating DJs and local talent playing from 8pm onwards. And then on Sundays from 2pm you can chill out to smooth sounds on vinyls from local record stores.
